I have been practicing as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 1994 and have a lot of experience with many different client groups.
Personal development is very important to me. I enjoy and believe it is important to keep up to date with current changes and new awareness in science in the Therapy field, including neuroscience, the impact of trauma on the body and mind, shamanic and trans-personal work as well as the impact of the environment on individuals.
I believe that we all have the potential within us to be our 'Best Selves'. It is an ongoing process and through the medium of a Therapeutic relationship, where we are heard and witnessed with compassion, we can then heal, grow and discover new vitality and aspiration.
